It's all about names today.....
The first rose of summer....."a rose by any other name" ....this is a rose named "Gertrude Jekyll". Not a pretty name, but she was a great gardener. ..."would smell as sweet." This is a David Austen English rose and it does have a wonderful fragrance! (photo taken just minutes ago, truly the first rose of the season for us!)
Names are being discussed on "Writing from Life" . "Do you like YOUR name?" asks Carmen. I answered in her comment section. I do like my name, now. It has many meanings from many cultures.
"Lila"="dark-haired beauty" in Persian, "purple or indigo" in Spanish, "divine play" in Sanskrit.
Which brings us to how we named our blogs, being discussed by Peta and friends. [I found this from, "Greenish Lady"'s blog.] The explanation for the name of my blog is above in the blog banner....at that time, I had no idea that "lila" could be "indigo" (or maybe blue-violet) in Spanish. I love all colors, but find myself drawn over and over again to indigo. So it is a good name for my blog.
